Lake House is open 7 days a week, serving lunch from 11:30 a.M. To 4p.M., And dinner from 4 p.M. To 9 p.M./ 10 P.M. On Fridays and Saturdays. Our a-la-carte Sunday brunch begins at 10:30 a.M.

Located at 3100 North Service Road in Vineland, Ontario, Lake House features Mediterranean cuisine, including such specialties as gourmet, thin-crust pizzas and magnificent risotto and pasta dishes as well as steak and seafood. There is something for everyone on our menu.

When you dine at Lake House Restaurant, you will want to save room for one of our housemade desserts. Our delectable dessert menu features our signature creme brulee, as well as our famous mini desserts - a little touch of sweetness after your meal.

Lake House Restaurant was originally built in 1867 by the Moyer family. Much of the natural charm of the house has been maintained with all of its original woodwork, exposed brick and three fireplaces still intact. A beautiful sunroom has been added onto the house, overlooking the lake. Join us from May to October on our spectacular patio where diners can experience a breathtaking view of the lake.

Lake House can also accommodate groups from 10-60 people in a variety of private and semi-private settings.

Enjoyable meal

We had a family meal at Lake House Restaurant and it was very good. Everyone ordered off the Prix-Fixe menu. The beef short ribs and the lamb shank were very tasty. I would recommend the baked brie over the salads - the lettuce wasn't very fresh. Service was very friendly. Overall a good meal.

My son took me out for a retirement dinner. We booked reservations, as can be quite busy. Service was prompt, friendly, attentive. Food was wonderful, never thought that Lobster Mac and Cheese would be so good and filling. Veal Parmesan was enough for two!

My husband and I enjoyed the braised rib dinner on my birthday but we're very disappointed in the dessert. He had a taste of a peanut butter parfait and I had a taste of chocolate mousse. Mine was very gritty and his tasted like pure peanut butter. After such a nice meal it should have finished with a better taste... More

Living in the Niagara Region, any drive towards Toronto includes passing the Lake House. We have probably driven past it hundreds of times and never once have I thought to go there.

For $32.95 we were not impressed with the prime rib. Very fatty and tough. A cup of regular coffee is $3.50.....rip off!

Thank you for your review. Prime rib tends to be a cut with much more marbling than other cuts of beef. On occasion, there can be too much but if you mention this when you are in for dinner, we would be happy to replace it. We use a very good quality coffee and it is a bottomless cup, so... More

3 couples visited for dinner, all of us had been before for either lunch or dinner. The restaurant was full, but our reservation was ready right on time. Service was prompt, efficient and very friendly. Ambience is warm, but a full house makes for a very noisy environment. Two of our number had the potato soup with bacon and cheddar.... More

The best thing about this restaurant is by far the patio. The view is absolutely beautiful if you can get a table outside. Sitting on the waterfront for dinner is always special.

I would recommend this restaurant for the breathtaking view. Ask for a window table and you will enjoy the view of Lake Ontario stretching out onto the horizon. Food and service are average to good. Stopped over for a bite and had salad and coffee. Little choice for non-meat eaters.

We had lunch at the Lake House Restaurant in Lincoln outside Niagara December 2015. We had been there before and enjoyed it, so made reservations this time and had seats overlooking the lake.
